Ah, apples. Eaten out of hand. Crisp and delicious.
Did you know that an apple a day really is good advice?
Apples have no fat, cholesterol or sodium, and contain small amounts of potassium, which promote heart health, help maintain healthy blood pressure and a healthy weight.
Smell that delicate aroma of freshly picked apples.
Can’t you just hear the sound of a child biting into a nice crisp apple? Imagine that little spurt of apple juice flickering on her lips…
Here’s a local Apple Orchard just outside of Chaseburg.
Maple Ridge Orchard, in the heart of Amish country.
Fresh. Homegrown. Local.
